In addition to Talia's strong personal loyalties and the devotion she feels for her nearest and dearest relations (as described on the previous page), Talia Balsam has great compassion and sensitivity toward people in all walks of life. Talia Balsam has a gift for understanding and appreciating a wide variety of art and life styles.
Moreover, Balsam should be careful not to be taken advantage of by others. Her good heart and innocent, unsuspecting attitude can make Talia Balsam a victim of others' greed. If this happens, Talia needs to avoid becoming bitter and resentful about life, and instead, to allow her great compassion and sensitivity to blossom and shine, rather than be dimmed by a few mistakes.
At heart she is very gentle, impressionable and receptive - a dreamer. The world of her imagination, feelings, and intuition is as real to Talia Balsam as anything in the outer world, though she may have trouble verbalizing or interpreting her inner experiences in a way others can understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, she has a rich inner life, though Balsam may seem rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. Talia Balsam usually keeps to herself.
Talia shows great sensitivity and empathy toward others and often senses things psychically or intuitively which prove to be correct. She is tolerant, forgiving and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. Talia has deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and she often feels the pain of others as if it were her own. Talia Balsam sympathizes with the needy, the disadvantaged and the misfits of society. She is capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker or minister. However, Balsam tends to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of her kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon her. Talia has little sense of boundaries, or of knowing when to say "no". Moderation and self-discipline are not her strong points.
She is a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and she tries to avoid open conflict. Balsam will patiently ignore or "tune out" problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than confront them directly and Balsam tends to lack the positive, fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. She is fluid, open, nonresistant and somewhat passive. Talia Balsam does things in a subtle, often covert, manner.
Her gifts may also lie in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for she possesses great sensitivity, inspiration and limitless imagination. Talia Balsam has a strong affinity for beauty and love.
Her faults include a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than take strong, definite action to change her life for the better. She also tends to become so detached from her immediate environment that she lives in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothers those around Balsam more than it bothers her.
Her career, reputation and public image are very important to Balsam. Talia Balsam has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. She is not satisfied with the personal sphere alone; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Talia Balsam may undervalue the personal or inner facet of life.
She is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Talia Balsam often feels that she needs to fight to get what she wants, and she tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. She is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
At times Talia Balsam may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter her direction in life or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly atypical. When her life becomes too predictable, Talia may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how she is doing it. These impulses may seem at odds with her conscious intent and desires for herself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Talia Balsam that needs to be expressed now and then.
Talia Balsam tends to become excited and upset at the slightest cause, generating tension with others. Talia also could encounter strange experiences or coincidences with others. She may have a feeling of being different than others and she wants to be her own person.
